An Active Business Man and
Prominent in Frederick Politics
Frederick, Md., Jan. 25.-- George Wenz died yesterday morning at the home of his brother-in-law John Eisenhauer, aged 57 years. He had been in ill-health for several years; but was confined to the house for a few days only with an attack of grip. He was engaged in business in Frederick city for the past twenty-two years. He always took an active interest in the developments of the city, and was one of the most prominent leaders in the Democratic party, having served as treasurer of the city committee for many years. He would never accept an office. He was offered the postmastership a few years ago for his fealty and in recognition of his services to his party, but declined it. He was a member of the United Steam Fire Engine Company, having served as a director for many years, and was largely instrumental in securing the first steam fire engine for that company, contributing liberally from, his own purse. He is survived by one sister, Mrs. John Eisenhauer, and leaves considerable property.
